Speak of the devil and it will appear.

Isn't it a crying shame how you became
Isn't it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn't it a crying shame how you became
Isn't it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life.

Welcome in tonight, wide open arms
Freeze dried smile, fixed in a frame of spite
Drop your names just like a bomb campaign
Collaborate while being exploited
And we celebrate by drinking poison.

Rolled back my eyes tonight, called you inside
Tied my tongue, tried to stop all your lies
I ask myself, who am I
Am i forever cast in your mold.

Devil in my life, treading on thin ice
With your words so wise, always in disguise
Devil in your eyes, i've seen it in your lies
Slowly mesmerized, as I fall you rise.

Devil in my life, treading on thin ice
With your words so wise, always in disguise
Devil in your eyes, I've seen it in your lies
Slowly mesmerized, as I fall you rise.

Isn't it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn't it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn't it a crying shame how you became the devil in my life
Isn't it a crying shame how you became.

You're the architect of my destruction.

Tears that fell tonight, your power fed
We slit our wrist, but it was you who bled
Gathered your minions to tell us that we are blessed
No one even dares to suggest we are so powerless.

Devil in my life, treading on thin ice
With your words so wise, always in disguise
Devil in your eyes, I've seen it in your lies
Slowly mesmerized, as I fall you rise.

You're the architect of my destruction
The implement of my corruption.
